xProDDNS 17.1.0 is “The Professional Dynamic DNS Client”

xProDDNS continues to evolve and improve with version 17.1.0.

  • HTTP/1.1 for Dynamic DNS Updates
  • Improved Security, Performance and Aesthetics
  • Refinements and Bug Fixes

Security and performance are better than ever. The user interface has been further tweaked and Dynamic DNS updates now use HTTP/1.1, which is required by Dyn and likely soon will be by No-IP, OpenDNS and DNS-O-Matic.

“The Professional Dynamic DNS Client” for Windows, macOS and Linux, including Rasbian for the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3, is available on our Downloads page.

xProDDNS 2016 Release 2

xProDDNS is the easy choice for managing dynamic IP addresses with or without Dyn, No-IP, OpenDNS and DNS-O-Matic. We have added broader monitoring, another data export format and the usual enhancements.

New for xProDDNS 2016 Release 2:

  • Private IP Address Monitor with Realtime Email and Text Message Alerts
  • CSV, XML and JSON formats for Exported Log
  • Self-Signed Certificate for OS X
  • Improved Security, Performance and Aesthetics
  • Refinements and Bug Fixes

What’s new:

  • Refinements for Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3
  • LSB-compliant init scripts for all Ubuntu and Debian based Linux distributions
  • SHA-2 / SHA-1 smart double-signing support for Windows 10 and backward compatibility through Windows Vista

Some additional cross-platform refinements and improvements along with a few bug fixes comprise the positive changes in xProDDNS 2016 Release 1.1 for Windows, OS X and Linux.

Note that for Linux there are now three packages, one for 64-bit, one for 32-bit and one specifically for Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3. Raspbian Jessie is the preferred version for the best stability, compatibility and performance.

xProDDNS 2016 Release 1

Raspberry Pi 2 is now easy to find thanks to xProDDNS 2016 Release 1. We have also added support for 64-bit Linux. For all Linux targets (i386, amd64 and armhf), a self-signed certificate is automatically generated for those that don’t yet have their own SSL Certificate. Security, performance and aesthetics have all been improved and there are lots of refinements and a few bug fixes.

xProDDNS 2015 Release 1.2

This update is loaded with under the hood refinements and a few bug fixes.

xProDDNS 2015 Release 1.1

xProDDNS now supports encrypted remote connections from any modern web browser. Use of a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop to remotely monitor and manage Dynamic DNS hosts is usually in response to the receipt of a realtime email or text message notification that a significant event just occurred. The most common events are the change of a public IP address and the subsequent update to Dyn, No-IP, OpenDNS or DNS-O-Matic. Dynamic DNS hosts can now be securely monitored and managed with intuitive and attractive web user interfaces tailored to the varying bandwidths and screen dimensions of mobile and stationary Internet connected devices.

Safety and resource utilization were both focal points in refactoring the data and telecommunications aspects of xProDDNS in order to support encrypted remote connections. The results are comprehensive and measurable advances in security and performance.

This latest release of xProDDNS also includes many enhancements to the mobile and full web user interfaces to make them even easier to use. Design refinements and additional graphics were applied to improve the aesthetics of nearly every dialog.

“The Professional Dynamic DNS Client” for Dyn, No-IP, OpenDNS and DNS-O-Matic is available on our Downloads page with installers for Windows, OS X and Linux.

xProDDNS 2014 Release 3

xProDDNS 2014 Release 3 introduces two exciting new features for server administrators and remote users with dynamic public IP addresses and/or hosts at No-IP, Dyn, OpenDNS and DNS-O-Matic.

  • Mobile Web User Interface for Smartphones
  • Email and Text Message Alerts when New Version of xProDDNS is Available

Smartphones are now automatically shown a mobile web user interface tailored to their small screen sizes and potentially limited data bandwidth. Tablets, laptops and desktops are shown a full web user interface. Hashtags can now be used to control which web user interface is shown, regardless of the device being used to access xProDDNS.

Server administrators and remote users can now be notified via email and text messages when a new version of xProDDNS is available to download.

Many refinements and two bug fixes are included in this new release.

xProDDNS 2014 Release 2

We are excited to announce the rapid release of xProDDNS 2014 Release 2. It introduces a great new feature and addresses a major flaw in SSLv3 (secure sockets layer version 3), a cryptographic protocol used for secure Internet connections.

  • Public IP Address Monitor with Realtime Email and Text Message Alerts
  • Exclusive Use of TLS to address the SSLv3 POODLE Vulnerability

Email and text message alerts are now sent whenever a public IP address changes. The realtime notifications are completely independent of any Dynamic DNS service provider accounts. This new feature makes xProDDNS a free IP monitor and a Dynamic DNS client.

TLS (transport layer security) is now used exclusively for all secure Internet connections. This strict change of cryptographic protocols is in response to the recently discovered POODLE vulnerability in SSLv3.

Visit our Downloads page for the latest version of xProDDNS for Windows, OS X and Linux.

POODLE Vulnerability in SSLv3

If you have not already read about the POODLE vulnerability in SSLv3 (secure sockets layer version 3), visit the Google Online Security Blog for the details.

xProDDNS, vmCLIpboard, vmProcessStrobe and vmProcessStrobeWeb are negatively impacted by this cryptographic protocol flaw so we are working hard to release new versions that do not rely on SSL. We will use TLS (transport layer security) exclusively for all secure Internet connections.

xProDDNS 2014 Release 1

We are proud to announce our first release of xProDDNS!

xProDDNS

“The Professional Dynamic DNS Client”

  • Native cross-platform
  • Web user interface
  • Encrypted databases
  • Hashed passphrase with obfuscated salt
  • Multiple providers, accounts, hosts and NICs
  • Secure checks, updates and notifications
  • Realtime email and text message alerts
  • Dynamic detailed log display
  • CSV and XML data exports
  • Context-sensitive help

xProDDNS runs natively on Windows, OS X and Linux. It is fast and efficient. Workstations and headless servers are equally easy to manage thanks to local and remote access via a web user interface powered by a built-in web server.

Security is paramount so all data is encrypted and the login passphrase is stored as a hash derived from an obfuscated salt. Outbound connections for checking public IP addresses, updating Dynamic DNS service providers and sending email and text messages are all made securely using SSL (secure sockets layer).

Versatile configurations are delivered through the simultaneous use of multiple Dynamic DNS service providers, multiple accounts per provider, multiple hosts per account and the choice of assigning a unique public, private or static IP address of any NIC (network interface controller) to each host. The frequency of checks for IP address changes and the period of time that the activity log data is maintained are both configurable.

Notifications of Dynamic DNS service provider updates and related errors are sent in realtime as email and text messages.

Activity log data is displayed dynamically and can be filtered with a wide variety of criteria so live monitoring of specific event types is accomplished with ease. That activity log data can then be exported as a file in CSV (comma-separated values) and XML (extensible markup language) formats.

Throughout xProDDNS, relevant guidance is provided using a context-sensitive help system.

xProDDNS is available now from our Downloads page.
